After years searching the globe we found our dream boat in Europe in late 2017, planning to sail to NZ. Taking delivery we set about preparing her for ocean adventure, renovating every needed aspect of her interior and exterior, to sail the Canaries and Western Med extensively this year. But family commitments have meant our plans can't continue indefinitely. We don't want our beautiful craft unused after all the completed work, so present her for other performance cruiser-sailors to consider.
